Is this currently the best State sports program? 12th straight NCAA bid!
The NC State gymnastics team received its 12th consecutive selection to compete in the 2014 National Collegiate Women’s Gymnastics Championships, as announced Monday afternoon by the NCAA. The Wolfpack will compete in the Athens, Ga., regional, hosted by University of Georgia.
"We’re excited to compete at the University of Georgia," said head coach Mark Stevenson. "It was the closest regional site for us to travel to and we feel like we got a good draw and can compete with most of the teams there. We’re looking forward to our trip"
Also competing in the six-team regional will be Michigan, Central Michigan, Ohio State, Rutgers, along with host Georgia.
Head coach Mark Stevenson, now in his 34th season, leads the Pack into the postseason for the 26th time in program history, all of which have come under his direction.
On another note, the BYU women's basketball team defeated number four seed Nebraska to advance to the sweet 16. Nebraska will be hosting those games, but will not be playing. So sad. Guess the analyst were wrong with regard to how good the BYU team is as they crushed our State team and defeated Nebraska. Next up for BYU most likely will be UCONN. Thurl Bailey's niece, Morgan, scored 18 points. It will be interesting to see how UCONN handles six-seven Hamson.
Oh, by the way, the Duke women lost to Depaul who full-court pressed them into 21 turnovers. Depaul also hit a season high 14 threes! Duke was a number two seed and is the first number two seed to not make the sweet sixteen since Xavier in 2011. Duke was playing at home. Again, so sad.
